Jeff Hardy, a high-flying wrestler who has held championships in several major wrestling promotions, will lead a card heavy with stars when Total Nonstop Action Wrestling stops Friday at the First Arena in Elmira.
Other wrestlers scheduled to appear include Jeff Jarrett, Tommy Dreamer, Brother Ray, Brother Devon, Shannon Moore and the tag team champions Beer Money. Gates open at 6:30 p.m., with wrestling beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Hardy twice won World Wrestling Entertainment’s heavyweight championship and, with his brother Matt Hardy, claimed the WWE’s tag-team belts six times. Known for his spectacular leaps and top-rope attacks, which frequently send opponents crashing through ringside tables, Hardy also won the TNA Heavyweight World Championship once.
Jarrett, who co-founded TNA with his father, wrestling promoter Jerry Jarrett, has been a top headliner since the 1980s. He is a six-time National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion and a four-time holder of the World Championship Wrestling belt.
Dreamer is a hardcore wrestling legend best known for his violent stint with the Philadelphia-based Extreme Championship Wrestling. Former tag-team partners Brother Ray and Brother Devon also first came to prominence via ECW. One of the most decorated teams in wrestling history, they are now bitter rivals. Moore is a former hardcore champion. Beer Money, the team of Robert Roode and James Storm, are in their fourth reign as the TNA World Tag Team Champions.
